For many years, the annual Concerts in the Park held in beautiful Crescent Park and organized by the Moose Jaw Health Foundation (MJHF) have been a welcome evening outing for many in in the community throughout the summer months.
This year, the 27th Annual Concerts in the Park has seen great attendance but the more the merrier when it comes to enjoying music right downtown at the amphitheatre on a lovely Saskatchewan evening.
The concerts have been taking place since June 15th every Wednesday and will continue until the last concert is held on August 24th. There’s a lot more great music still to enjoy at the concerts (7-8pm) and everyone is welcome. Bring your family and/or friends to just relax and unwind or maybe even dance to a few numbers all in support of this great fundraiser.
Concerts still to come are:
• Bonnie & the Jets return on August 10.
• Scott Heatcoat will be performing on August 17.
• Runaway Train will be performing on August 24 from 6:30 P.M. to 8 P.M.
There is no admission but a collection bin is passed around after each concert for anyone that wishes to donate to raise money for the Women's Health Unit and Pediatrics at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital. This year’s amount raised at the Concerts in the Park will be revealed at the 800 Annual CHAB Radiothon.
Many of the bands that were on this year’s line-up include: Band City Band, Bonnie & the Jets, Gary & Boyz, Timothy Eatons Jam Band, SRW Country Trio, Just ‘n Tyme and Derald Busse & Friends.
“We just appreciate everyone coming out every Wednesday for our wonderful event. As much as the community enjoys it, the medical staff at the hospital appreciate all the dollars that are raised, because all those dollars raised at Concerts in the Park stay in our community to help patients at the hospital. That has been happening for many, many years and will happen for many years to come because it is a toe-tapping good time for everyone involved,” says Kelly McElree, the Executive Director of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation.
